Wesley's Explanatory Notes
Psalms 142

 

 

Verse 3

When my spirit was overwhelmed within me, then thou knewest my path. In the way wherein I walked have they privily laid a snare for me.

Knowest — So as to direct me to it.

My path — What paths I should chuse whereby I might escape.


Verse 4

I looked on my right hand, and beheld, but there was no man that would know me: refuge failed me; no man cared for my soul.

Right-hand — The place where the patron or assistant used to stand.


Verse 5

I cried unto thee, O LORD: I said, Thou art my refuge and my portion in the land of the living.

Portion — Even in this life.


Verse 7

Bring my soul out of prison, that I may praise thy name: the righteous shall compass me about; for thou shalt deal bountifully with me.

Prison — Set me at liberty.

Compass — Shall flock to me from all parts, to rejoice and bless God with me and for me.
